A good guide for bedroom color schemes is to begin by deciding the colors that are most likely to give you a good night's sleep. In the science of colors, blue, dusty rose, pale lavender or grey are all good choices for a relaxing bedroom.
Add Subtle Drama
Contemporary bedroom color schemes lean toward subtle drama that has eye appeal. If this is your personal preference, color schemes of delicate coral, vanilla and lime offer hues that contrast subtly and add a light sense of drama.
In this color scheme, walls should be painted in a bold neutral such as Coronation. Then accessorize with a light lime green for a bit of lively drama. This is an especially accommodating color scheme for bedrooms with low lighting. Choose your bedroom color scheme so it adapts to all seasons of the year or be innovative and dabble in colors that spotlight special seasons, if you find regular change encourages sleep.
Appeal to Inner Personality
Bedroom colors should appeal to the inner personality. For example, if you are more of the seafaring type, you may choose to wrap yourself in colors of the sea like Biscay Bay, or try seashell mosaic blues, purples and yellows. Bedroom color schemes can be as flexible and innovative as your preferences allow.
Grey, lavender and aubergines, a purple as deep as that of an eggplant, marry nicely for elegant bedroom decor. When trying to balance your color choices, keep darker colors at base levels to give the bedroom colors balance.
There are several shades of lavender that accent a gray like Billowing Clouds. When you add aubergines or Purple Basil to these two colors in your bedroom, you create a regal effect.
Finding Your Own Way
Try matching your mood with your color schemes. If you find yourself yearning for a luxurious look, pair a golden yellow like Twinkle Little Star with a patterned bedding to add visual interest to the room.
If you are most comfortable in nature, try the colors of the forest in your bedroom - Sarsaparilla or Pinetop.
No matter which of the color schemes you choose for your bedroom, it can be an expression of you.
